Kitchen islands are very popular with a large number of our clients at the moment, and it’s easy to see why. An island becomes a centrepiece in your kitchen that’s truly versatile. It’s a focal point that not only looks great and brings a whole new dynamic to your kitchen, but which also provides so much in regards to functionality.

We’ve put together a short blog which outlines five great reasons to include an island in your kitchen…


1. They look fantastic!

 There are lots of things to consider when choosing your new kitchen and, of course, the design and aesthetics are high on that list. You want a kitchen that’s stunning and which you’ll love for many years to come. There’s no denying that kitchen islands are striking and can bring a real wow factor to a kitchen.



2. Storage

An island is the perfect way to add additional storage options to your kitchen. This is of course particularly useful if the rest of your kitchen is lacking in the storage department. With a number of storage options to choose from including drawers and shelves, as well as overhead options, there are a wide range of solutions which are not only very practical, but which can actually compliment the overall design of your room.

Furthermore, it can really improve the overall flow of your kitchen so that you can move seamlessly from fridge to worktop to oven to sink.
